Trash & Recyclables Pickup
LRS is Blooming Grove's trash and recycling hauler. Their collections take place on Fridays in Blooming Grove, except when a holiday falls sometime during that work week -- in which case they pick up on Saturday. Trash and recycling carts must be wheeled out to the street on collection days no later than 7:00am. A schedule of the trash and recycling pickups can be found under "Forms and Permits" on the Town's home page.
LRS also picks up large items like appliances, construction materials, lawn mowers, and furniture. Residents must call for pick up of these items since there is an extra charge. If you have these or any other items that do not fit in your trash or recycling carts, contact LRS at 608-580-0580 to make arrangements. This large-item pickup takes place the 2nd Friday of the month.

The Town’s Public Works department picks up yard waste (grass clippings and leaves) twice every year. In the Spring pick up is between April 1 and May 15. In the fall it’s October 15 through November 30 (or earlier if it snows). Your yard waste must be placed in bags weighing less than 40 pounds, and tied at the top. Do not put any other trash in or near these bags! While not required, we recommend residents use paper bags such as these:

The only place to properly dispose of hazardous materials is to the Dane County Clean Sweep. It has moved from it's old location on Fish Hatchery Road and is now out by the intersection of the Beltline and the interstate. They take a wide array of materials, for a small fee; make sure they'll take whatever you have by visiting their website here: http://www.danecountycleansweep.com/
